ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
The author says that it was her 8th novel that opened the door to finding her way as a writer. "I'm a Christian woman, first and foremost," she says. "So it was a bit of a dream-come-true when Summerside Press chose me as one of two authors to launch the Love Finds You line."
Sandie's real-life role as cancer survivor has parlayed into her steadfast commitment to raising awareness and funds for ovarian cancer research. Spearheading a series of devotionals for Summerside Press (such as the popular His Grace is Sufficient...Decaf is Not), the author has stipulated that a portion of each contributor's proceeds will go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
"Being allowed to combine my faith and my humor with raising funds for my pet projects ... and still pursue my writing dream," says Bricker, "well, that's the best of all worlds, as far as I'm concerned!"
And one of the author's pet projects is animal rescue, evidenced by the special bond she has created with one particular formerly-abandoned puppy -- a red-haired collie with "killer brown eyes and the heart of the class clown."
ABOUT THE BOOK
This is one of those books that kept me up until wee hours of the morning because once I started I couldn't stop!
When you have a death and a 10yr coma in a book you would think it would be a deeply sad book to read, but that is definitely not the case. This book is full of wit and humor, I caught myself laughing out loud several times. It's not that the circumstances are taken lightly, it's more that Shannon is just one of those people who sees things through a cheerier lense than some! Add to that, a World that has changed quite a bit since she fell into her coma.....
A great read, packed with fun.
